I think this product has been discontinued but I assume the new sea salt spray is basically the same. Of course, the word "wizards" is part of what made me want this product in the first place. It's a good pick-me-up when my hair has gotten a little flat; on second-day hair it gives a kind of artfully disheveled look. Finish is indeed matte, and too much makes your hair a bit dry.
Best salt spray hands down. Delivers a fine mist that never oversaturates hair, and it has the unique effect of adding volume without making hair crunchy or staticky after blowdrying and styling. This is also a great leave in prep for hair that tends to be too slippery to hold any style or curl - it helps to give hair grip and matte texture. It also has a very clean sweet/herbal scent. Well worth the $25+ price tag as one bottle lasts at least 3-4 months with daily use.
This is a must for the 'beach-y wave' look. Its amazing stuff. If anything, I use it because it smells SOOOO good.
I spray this lightly following Davines Dede leave in spray conditioner for fine hair. This sea salt spray (for wizards ;-) provides just the right amount of hold to my naturally fine but a lot of 2A curly/ wavy hair. The combination with the leave in conditioner leaves my hair soft and shiny, stands up to record 104 degree temperatures and humidity. This performs better than gel, not sticky. Too much and it gets dry but not crunchy. Magnesium sulfate helps with curl formation but some curlies may not like that ingredient. It's pricey at $26 for 8.45 oz plain gray spray bottle. You only need a couple sprays. It's a light mist and covers well.
